    I don’t really like car writing.  We were following a car once that said something like “Gettin it on tonight!” which was sort of creepy.

    I really like them, but I would pick something of decent quality and maybe just 1 sign on the back, I wouldn’t go crazy with the decorations on the cars.

    And something with Just Married, not the weird one MissAsB mentioned LOL that IS creepy and just not very mature……

    Not a fan of writing on a car in general, but clings are much less damaging to a vehicle than shoe polish that is traditionally used.

    I think a Just Married one would be cute! And a lot easier to take off afterwards than all the junk they sometimes decorate cars with.

    @MrsSaltWaterTaffy:  LOL……This is a little off topic, but your comment made me think of this……A couple of years ago my mom was driving and I was in the passenger seat. We were taking my younger sister to school. Some old guy pulled up next to me in a hoopty and his window said “flash me….it’s my birthday.” He was a definite creeper and I was horrified. He kept looking at me, I guess he thought I would…..I just shrunk back in my seat. My mom teased me for the longest time….what a strange experience…….

    Back on topic…..I think a just married one would be cute :-). I wonder if there are any other creative ways to decorate? I wonder if you could get a large door magnet with your initals on it or something? I know they have those for sports and what not. That may be tacky….lol….IdK….I’m not the person to ask for stylish things :-P. Just figured I would toss that out! Hope you have a wonderful day :-). Best of luck with the wedding planning!

    I think this is a much better idea then having people write on the car! We were going to use car magnet actually.. but ended up not. You can find those on esty im pretty sure. But i like the idea!

    I never got the point of decorating the car.  And since our getaway car was a minivan with my son driving, it might have caused all sorts of attention we didn’t want.

    I pretty much think it comes down to the “cling” some are cute some are cheap and tacky.

    I think those are so adorable!!  Our car was decorated with window paint, and bright colored zip ties.  Seriously.  It was both awesome and hideous.  I absolutely loved it.  It rained though, so most everything came off right away.  I think decals would be cute, and you wouldn’t have to worry about rain!

    I seriously think that they are totally fine…when are you ever going to get the chance to be “Just Married” ever again? 🙂

    @ashleetoo: I definitely repressed that until I saw MissAsB’s comment. That reminded me of it lol. People are strange…..you are right, there has to be a market for these things though if they are making it. I feel bad for any poor person who drives by that guy. He probably leaves it up year round.

    I wish I could find a picture with the zipties…that was a dear friend of DH’s who did that after our Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man decorated.  We actually left them on when we drove to the afterparty!
